Okay, here's another movie mystery.
Just like 'The Peanut Butter Solution', I thought this film or TV show didn't exist and that I just dreamt about it, but I have a feeling it was something that I saw as a kid and I rmemeber it scaring the crap out of me! Anyway, here goes.
It takes place with a group of kids, all about 12 years old, and they're walking through the dark or the woods somewhere, but every time the lightening strikes one of them disappears. Then when they find them again they've changed into something horrifying. One boy disappeared and was transformed into a tree and from what I remember he was all bloody and disgusting looking. And a girl with a pink bow disappeared, then she returned as a skeleton of an animal or dinosaur of some kind, and every time the kid tried to move the bones would move in his direction. It was such a weird thing and I swear I saw it on TV with my parents sitting on the couch behind me, and ever since I've never seen or heard from it again.
Does anyone know what this could be, it's driving me mad?!!!
I have one as well. I don't know if this was a horror movie or what, it seems like it. The only part I saw was a girl was sleeping in her room and an old woman's head woke her up and started floating above her bed. She'd scream for her parents, they would come and the head would be gone. Then as soon as they'd leave, the old woman's head would return. It was creepy. I wish I could remember exact details, it sucks trying to remember things like this because your perception when your younger is quite different. It may not have happened exactly the way you remember it. This was probably around 1990 though the movie could be older.
I think I can solve both of your mysteries.
lycanthropic-689-275769 - You are thinking of an episode of "Punky Brewster" titled "Perils of Punky." This was notoriously scary to little kids (including me). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRf6hjm9hvU
branenj001 - You might be thinking of an episode of Goosebumps titled "Welcome to Dead House." Here is a clip of that scene (it's actually supposed to be a young zombie girl floating over her bed but she looks old). This is notorious for being super scary for kids who all write about being traumatized by it (ironically I was researching "Goosebumps" last week and watched this episode recently). https://youtu.be/cOIOmMOrSbw?t=16m20s
So it seems the reason you couldn't track down these movies or they were both two-part scary episodes of (supposedly) kids television. Which also explains why you watched it at such a young age.
Oh your good!!!!! :-D
